Hello @Rosm and firstly welcome to this friendly and supportive forum. There is a wealth of shared experience of dementia to be found here and members really do want to help.
I am sorry to read about your Mum and her need for nursing care:
I am attaching a link which may have information and advice that you are looking for.
I, personally, have do direct experience of FNC, but I'm sure other's do and will be along shortly with any advice or suggestions.

As per the link Gosling has put up here, nursing care in a nursing home not just a care home can help or even cover all the costs, however, dementia of itself isn't always classed as a medical need.
Other co-conditions may be needed to make it funded as nursing/medical care as opposed to social care. K
